Best way to show a binary sensor (door)


I am trying to create a simple dashboard for the Elsys EMS Door. At its simplest it sends a 1 when it is closed and a 0 when it is opened (plus a whole lot of other data); What’s the best way of showing this? A red blob saying closed and green showing open? How would I do this from the standard widgets?

hi @pat.molloy,

Yes, you need to create a dashboard and add some widgets. I recommend you use the ICON widget to show an icon of the door open/closed.

Thanks - yes it was really a question about which is the best widget !! I did not know about the ICON widget … thanks I will have a look!
